We have 9 regular dinner meetings per year, once each month except for July, August and December. Social hour starts at 6:00pm, dinner at 7:00pm and the dinner speaker starts at about 8:00pm. The dinner is Scandinavian and usually starts with herring and salmon open-faced sandwich appetizers and ends with coffee/tea and delicious Scandinavian desserts. The theme for the after dinner talk is usually business related and hopefully with a Scandinavian connection but we also schedule other speakers of interest. Two meetings of the year we have no speaker. Instead, in February we have our Annual General meeting where we discuss business for the upcoming year and elect our new board of directors. In June, we have our annual joke-telling contest and discover who, among us, is the best teller of jokes.
The cost for dinner is $25.00 per member and $35.00 per guest.
Location: Scandinavian Community Centre, Burnaby
In December, instead of our usual monthly dinner meeting, we have our annual Christmas party. We have a fabulous Scandinavian Christmas dinner, carols by the Christmas tree and dancing to live music.
Each June we have a booth at the Midsummer Festival on the grounds of the Scandinavian Community Centre. In addition to handing out information about our club, we also sign up new members. Everyone is invited to come out to enjoy this fun annual event.
